I'm new here. I've just had my second pacemaker installed after 10 years on the first. My Pacemaker Tech downloaded the information some 4 weeks ago which showed I had 14 noise events on one of the leads. The surgeon who replaced my PM said to the tech "Did you look deeper at the download?". Apparently I had 2 thousand noise events which he did not pick up. The symptoms were when walking along I would black out....a terrible feeling. I would stop and hold onto anything nearby hopefully not to collapse. The interesting thing was that when I sat still or basically not move at all I never had any black outs. It was only when I moved that it happened. It turns out one of the leads had frayed and wasn't allowing the signal from my heart to get to the pacemaker to cut in when needed. It felt like I had died 2 thousand times. Can anyone relate to this experience? Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
